I have a 13 gallon mixed reef in my office at work. Everything is flourishing and I test the water every 2 days to stay on top of it. But I was wanting to add a monitor system so that I could monitor it on weekends, holidays and vacation days and cut out some of my routine testing. I’m new to...

Last year's freeze in TX hit my 6 yo tank pretty hard and I didn't have a battery powered heater or pump to save it :( Unfortunately, most of the fish, the inverts, coral, and sponges did not survive. I take a lot of pride in the care of my critters so, losing so much of my tank so quickly hit...
